Hungry for Real Fried Chicken

  • z

Where to go? The last good fried chicken I had was at Maurice's Chat and Snack or is it Snack and Chat?
Popeye's doesn't quite do it but the red beans and rice are really good. My confession for Monday.

  1. Went to a super bowl party yesterday, they had fried chicken from Slavko's in San Pedro. It was very good, not greasy or dry at all.

    1. Ah, fried chicken...

      Mrs. Knott's has good fried chicken. I haven't been there in years (too busy for my tastes) but I remember the chicken being very good.

      They are located right outside of the park with the same name.

      Although a lightning rod on this board, I like Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles for fried chicken as well.

      Other than that, it is a cast iron skillet, picket line and a secret reciepe later that keeps the fried chicken urge at bay for a while.

        I second Roscoe's. I can't think of a place where I've had better fried chicken. Their red beans and rice dish is also pretty darn good.

      2. Stevie's on the Strip, Crenshaw and Jefferson, makes some good fried chicken. Pass on the cornbread. (And take some gumbo home)

          Stevie's is the best! But sadly, I heard they are now closed. There was nothing better than their fried chicken with the batter-dipped french fries and homemade ranch dressing!

          Cardiologist anyone?

        2. Aunt Kizzy's has made to order Fried Chicken bursting with juice and crispy crunchy. At lunch it sits under heat lamps and gets dry if you don't come when a fresh batch is ready.
